Do you #ChooseToInclude?

Canadians with an intellectual disability (ID) have known the pain of isolation and exclusion long before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Many children, youth and adults with an ID get left out – on the playground, of the workforce, the conversation. Together, we have the power to change this when we Choose To Include.

Show your support by joining us for Global Week of Inclusion Monday July 20 to Sunday July 26.

Follow these three easy steps to show us you Choose To Include:

  1. Take a photo of yourself (on your own, or with friends/family, if safe to do so) holding a sign that reads “I #ChooseToInclude” (Keep the sign simple – or get creative!)
  2. Post the photo (make sure the sign, message and your face are visible) to social media with #ChooseToInclude & @SpecialOCanada
  3. Tag at least one friend encouraging them to #ChooseToInclude with you.

If you follow the above three steps, not only will you be a Champion of Inclusion, but you’ll also be entered to win a $50 or $100 TimCard!
